The electromagnetic modes in organic conductors with marked anisotropy Fermi surface in the form of the warping planes has been investigated theoretically in the presence of an external magnetic field H0. The specific feature of such electron energy spectrum is that the electron drift velocity is an oscillatory function of the angle of magnetic-field direction. For certain orientations of H0 there is no Landau absorption, and propagation of weakly damped collective modes is possible even under strong spatial dispersion. We have shown that the high-frequency collective modes which are analogues of cyclotron waves in metals with closed Fermi surface sections may occur in the considered conductors. The spectrum of these excitations in the neighborhood of the resonances has been obtained.
